Mini Swap

Our Mini Swap package has arrived from Norway! Strikkelise and her children sent the most amazing things! Thank you so much!

Elsie spent a great deal of time learning where Norway is and looking at pictures on Strikkelise's blog.

She was thrilled to open the box and discover everything wrapped in pink!... the most perfect color in the world!

The Hello Kitty barrettes are a big hit. She immediately put them in her hair. She took them out to sleep, but has them back in again this morning.

All the goodies....

.... and some magazines for Mommy! Which I absolutely love... and may have to figure out how to purchase an international subscription. The pictures are so beautiful.

There are also these really, really cool metallic pencils. They are kind of fat, but have a triangular cross section so they don't roll off the table. Genius! When you go to the manufacturer's website, there are all kinds of triangular pencils!

Thank you, thank you!!!!

We're so glad you liked it! The kids are stunned to see their stuff having landed on the other side of the ocean, too.

Hey there :) I just found your blog today and I wanted to say "hi" from a fellow Oregonian/knitter/sewer/gardener, ect... lol. Out of curiosity, what online games do you play?

Hi Becca-
Thank you for visiting! I play Unreal Tournament 2004. Do you play?

Becca said...

No, I don't play that one, but I used to play World of Warcraft. Very fun game. The one you play almost looks like Halo from xbox.... looks like fun :)
